3 A.M – BRUISER IS CRASHING – HE NEEDS HELP ONCE MORE – WE ARE HEADING TO THE EMERGENCY VET

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis. Bruiser is crashing. It's 3 a.m. and I can hear him struggling to breathe. He has fought so hard to be here, and we finally got his blood test coming back close to normal. It was a big improvement, but he was still having issues. Bruiser is having trouble when he drinks his milk. We always take them off the bottle asap, and many times they never even see a bottle. However, this is when Bruiser's troubles started. He was "off", or "special" if you will, when we got him. His band left him alone to die. It is obvious there were multiple reasons for Mama to leave him. In the wild, if a baby is sick or injured, the stallion or others in the band will often kill it, or they just leave it behind. It is harsh, but is is survival and they do not want predators attracted. He was not a "dummy" foal, but his brain was not fully wired yet. He has been improving, but this morning I can hear the pneumonia. He has been on antibiotics and Doc has tried numerous ones to help him, but this is a critical situation at this point. I am not sure if Comstock can save him or not, (they have a hospital on sight). It is so hard, because this is not a baby that has been depressed or lays around moping. He is feisty and runs and plays, but he is crashing right now. It is definitely NOT in the budget, but I have to try and give him one last chance. PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN! There is so much heartache out there. I am hoping ...

NEWBORN BABY(S) AT THE SHIPPER – SEVERELY INJURED MARE – CAN WE KEEP HER OFF THE SLAUGHTER TRUCK?

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis. MEET "DESTINY" - As you can see, she has quite the injury and needs vet care as soon as possible. If she cannot be fixed, we would give her a peaceful ending. However, I am hopeful that with lots of TLC we can save her. URGENT - RECEIVED A PHONE CALL TODAY FOR A NEWBORN (Not sure how many) ON THE FEED LOT. Thankfully, (if you can find anything to be thankful about in these situations) baby gets to stay with Mama for a few more days. When Mama ships, we will need to be there. (I DO NOT have an option to save Mama). It is beyond heartbreaking, but we have to focus on the ones we can save. SEVERELY INJURED MARE - DESTINY - This mare's injury is in such a place it may be extremely hard for it to heal. At the very least she needs to be kept off the slaughter truck. WE ARE HER ONLY CHANCE! If you blow up the photo you can see how big her gash is, and that she already has swelling in her tummy. She needs help asap. I have a vet scheduled for Monday to see if she can help her. (Can't get her until we raise the funds to save and vet her.) We are also doing Coggins, Health Certs etc. on the other kids. Out of 4 TB colts, only one was healthy. Sadly, our beautiful little buckskin passed during the night. I was told she was eating and drinking but not feeling well, and this morning when they went out to feed she had passed. We have a huge hernia to repair, a big gouge in the ...

Boots & Bling Update

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: During these uncertain times, our thoughts are with you, our AAE community, your families and friends. We have YOU, thank you!  Important Updates Out of an abundance of caution for your well-being and that of our volunteers, participants, supporters, and vendors, AAE made the difficult decision to postpone our Boots & Bling event from May 2, 2020 to a late Summer/early Fall date. Due to the uncertainties with the current COVID-19 situation, our event venue has a scheduling moratorium in place.  As soon as we can we can move forward with scheduling, taking into consideration the safety of everyone involved, we will announce a new date. Boots and Bling is critical to AAE's annual funding, and it is also a very important event where all of AAE's supporters can come together. We assure you, Boots will not be canceled. The BEST part is we'll have more time to create a BETTER event!! We hope you are as excited as we are to get the date set! Again, out of an abundance of caution for our volunteer and community safety, we have implemented numerous measures related to COVID-19 which have impacted our day to day activities at AAE. Though we have many horses looking for homes, our ADOPTION VISITS are temporarily on hold. If you are interested in adopting a horse, we are still working remotely to discuss adoption interest and review inquiries. Our VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES have been temporarily limited to small teams carrying out essential activities to assure the horses are well cared for. We continue accessing veterinary, hoof and dental care, as needed.   NEW VOLUNTEER ORIENTATIONS have been temporarily postponed; however, we are still collecting information from anyone interested in volunteering, once we resume normal day-to-day activities. AAE'S USED TACK STORE is temporarily closed. We look forward to re-opening ...

Save Your Ass Rescue Newsletter

The following is from Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue:  A Breath of Fresh Air to Your Inbox We are finally into our first couple days of spring! In South Acworth NH our first day of spring we were covered in a couple inches of snow, it was a beautiful morning and all gone by the evening. We genuinely hope our farm updates and stories in this news letter help to distract you from what is going on in the "real" world right now. Ann and I made the decision on Friday to close the farm to visitors for at least the next two weeks. We believe this is the socially responsible thing to do. We hope you all stay healthy and happy! Our annual Cabin Fever Auction is ending tonight at 9pm on Facebook. We had lots of awesome items donated this year such as tack, tasty food, a safari trip, and lots of hand-made items and art! This auction helps us to pay for a lot of our much needed grain supplies, de-wormers, annual vet care for vaccinations, dental work, blood work, and fecals, fencing that needs to be replaced, and hoof trims. Our online auction is only accessible through Facebook, we are sorry about any inconvenience this causes you. TAKE ME TO THE AUCTION! Whats new on the farm? We have quite a few new animals on the farm since our last updates. It is always exciting getting to know and love each individual. Below are all of the new rescue faces! This past Wednesday we had our veterinarian out for a full day of dentals, spring shots, blood work and donkey and mule check ups. A lot of the animals we take in need some serious dental work, unfortunately for our wallet this time around was a full day of mostly dental work. Each animals vet work, shots, fecals, blood work, tests, dentals, check ...

SLAUGHTER TRUCKS ARE ROLLING – AN EMERGENCY CALL TO SAVE 6 (POSSIBLY MORE) PRECIOUS LIVES!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Hi everyone. 1st and foremost, I hope and pray everyone is hanging in there during this time of crisis. SADLY however, the slaughter trucks CONTINUE TO ROLL! I received a call to see if we can save these 6 beautiful souls from slaughter. We are their only chance as they will not be heading to an auction, simply loaded on a trailer and shipped to their death. We are working with a local rescue who will be working along side us to help us try and get these kids placed locally. I have a potential adoption for the shaggy little buckskin and for the 2 year old mare. However, none of them are safe as of right now and they need your help. We will save as many of them as we can, based on our ability to "save them", get them vetted, transported and have appropriate funds to make sure they are fed and cared for properly. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ME STAND IN FRONT OF THEM AND PICK AND CHOOSE WHO GETS TO LIVE! That is the worst feeling. I truly understand so many folks have lost their income and things seem really sketchy right now. Please if you are in that situation just say a big prayer for these kids. When God puts these kids in front of us I know He expects us to try and save them. We can only do our best, but it is so not fair for them to be slaughtered because I didn't try. SO, IF you are in a position to donate or possibly adopt a yearling thoroughbred colt, please do so. Please share this far and wide as it will be a true miracle if we can pull this off under the circumstances. We need BAIL, TEMPORARY LODGING, HAULING AND VETTING ...
